Seminole Electric

In 1935, President Franklin D. Roosevelt created the Rural Electrification Administration (REA) by executive order to bring electricity to rural communities through the formation of electric cooperatives. In 1937, the REA drafted the Electric Cooperative Corporation Act, a law permitting states to create and operate not-for-profit, member-owned distribution electric cooperatives. The same year, Florida’s first distribution electric cooperatives were formed.

In 1948, Seminole Electric Cooperative was incorporated to give the Member distribution cooperatives buying power by aggregating their demand for electricity. Until the mid-1970s, Seminole remained a "paper G&T."
